The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Old-time Radio Show 1939-46

Buy Ad-free Rathbone and Bruce Episodes

All the original broadcast episodes come with adverts that interrupt the story at the start, in the middle and at the end. The adverts add up to quite a few minutes per episode and soon become annoying after you've listened to a few of the adventures.

Because of this, I've edited out these bothersome commercial breaks in the story from all 54 episodes in my possession but kept some portions of the introduction, goodbyes, and the to-and-fro between Dr. Watson and the host in order to keep the natural flow of the storytelling.

I've equalised the volume on all episodes, tidied up the mp3 tags and added a jpeg, so they all look nice on your pc / mac / mp3 players, etc. The edited episodes are available to buy on CD for £4.95 inc. p&p to the UK, £6.95 inc. p&p to rest of the world.

The CD comes in a slim-line jewel case with an illustrated cover. In addition to the edited shows, the CD also includes all the original radio recordings of the episodes. Episodes are in mp3 format.

Buy Ad-free Bruce and Conway Episodes

When Basil Rathbone left the radio show in 1946, Tom Conway was the replacement Sherlock Holmes for 39 episodes, with Nigel Bruce continuing on as Dr. Watson. There's currently 38 of these episodes in circulation ⁄ existence and I've also edited out the advert breaks from these episodes. After feeling ambivalent about these episodes for a while, I find myself liking them more as I listen to them. Conway has a voice similar to Rathbone, and Bruce is fabulous as Watson as per usual.

As for the other CD, I've equalised the volume and tidied up the mp3 tags. These edited episodes are available to buy on CD for £4.95 inc. p&p to the UK, £6.95 inc. p&p to rest of the world.

The CD comes in a slim-line jewel case with an illustrated cover, and also includes all the original, unedited versions of the episodes. Episodes are in mp3 format.
